Aimed at ages 8-16

Offering a greener alternative to shop-bought paints, this half-term art masterclass will teach children how to make their own acrylic and oil paint using dry soil. Led by artist Luisa Freitas, the session will also include a chance to use the paints to create your own seascape, learning a range of techniques for applying the paints to canvas. At the end of the workshop, each participant will be able to take home any remaining paint along with their canvas artwork.
